Woodward could support more retailers


Woodward, Okla. — OTHER BUSINESS

While no action was taken regarding Hayes' presentation, city commissioners did act on a number of other items during Monday's meeting.  The city board approved the following:

• a bid from Cline Consolidated Industries, Inc. in the amount of $107,310 for 2 sewer line extension projects.  One project is along 48th St. and Oil Patch Dr.-to serve oil field businesses in that area- and the second is along Lakeview Dr. south of Downs Ave.-to serve homes and businesses in that area;

• FY 2014 renewal of the lease agreement with Panhandle Nutrition Services for use of the kitchen and dining room at the Woodward Senior Center for its senior meal program;

• selecting Eagle View Golf to design a new miniature golf course for Crystal Beach Park and giving City Manager Alan Riffel permission to proceed with the use of city resources and a contract with Eagle View Golf to construct the new course by this summer;

• a concessionaire agreement with K&T Catering to provide food and beverage concessions for scheduled events and special events at the Crystal Beach Sports and Events Complex (this is separate from the city's agreement with K&T Catering for concessions at the Aquatics Center);

• a mowing agreement with Uncle Bill's Lawn Care Service in the amount of $1,580 every 10 to 12 days for mowing 9 different areas around Woodward throughout the summer;

• a request from Boiling Springs State Park to dig a water well east of the park office to be used for irrigation purposes; and

• a bid from Cleary Building Corporation in the amount of $219,300 for a new 60-foot by 100-foot maintenance building with 12-foot outdoor lean-to for the Boiling Springs Golf Course to replace the old maintenance building that burned down last July.  A portion of the cost of the new building will be offset by a $90,000 insurance payment for the loss of the old building.
